Snow Way! Mirror, Mirror Moves Back Two Weeks, Releases Featurette; New Snow White and the Huntsman Image
Posted 01.26.12 by Ryan
Relativity Media drew first blood in the battle of the live-action Snow White movies by winning a scheduling chess match last year and grabbing a March 16 release date for Mirror, Mirror — months before Universal will release its Snow White and the Huntsman. Now, it appears Relativity wants a little bit more time, granting director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) another couple weeks and rescheduling Mirror, Mirror for March 30.
While Singh started shooting the movie last June, the move may have been more of a marketing decision. Previously, Mirror, Mirror, a comedic take on the Snow White story, was set to compete against the two other comedies — 21 Jump Street (which has been receiving good online buzz) and Butter — but will instead go up against against action sequel Wrath of the Titans and the animated The Pirates! Band of Misfits.
With only one trailer so far for Mirror, Mirror, Relativity recently released a featurette that has new footage from the movie and Lily Collins discussing Snow White's journey as she battles the Evil Queen (Julia Roberts). The clip also reveals more of the movie's humor (thankfully, the "Snow White? Snow way!" joke from the trailer is nowhere to be found).
Meanwhile, a new image was released for the darker and more action-driven Snow White and the Huntsman. While the photo doesn't offer new insight into the movie, it does remind audiences that Universal's Snow White is the one starring Kristen Stewart.
Snow White and the Huntsman was directed by newcomer Rupert Sanders and co-stars Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and
Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen.
